“Nice Food not so sure about the Service”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

The food at this restaurant was lovely, very tasty indeed, the service was a little hit and miss, had to call over the waitress for everything from drinks to the bill, the restaurant wasn't busy so was a little disappointed service wasn't a little more observant to our needs, although it didn't spoil our visit too much as we would go again

“Birthday Treat”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Usually go to one of the other Tapas restaurants in Eastbourne but as this was a 75th Birthday treat we made a special effort to book a table at this popular restaurant.
We were not dissappointed.The Food,Wine and Service was outstanding.
Even better than our favourite Tapas restaurant in the Brighton Lanes.
All the Tapas we had were wonderful and the Mousse de Chocolate was a delight.
Many thanks to all the staff for making this an evening to remember.

“Absolute gem. Loved it. ”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

To be honest we ended up in Eastbourne because we left it too late to get a room in Brighton! I'd done a bit of research and - according to Trip Advisor - Flamencos seemed a good enough bet. Eastbourne is a weird place. Somehow in an era of its own. Lots about it reminded me - not always fondly - of my 1970s childhood. But I'd go back just to eat here again. Good atmosphere, pleasant and fast service, and (for someone used to eating tiny portions of tapas in London served on plates the size of beer mats) amazingly good value for money. The food was without exception absolutely delicious and we were so disappointed not to be able to finish it! The restaurant recommends four plates per person as a guide! I don't know how much people in Eastbourne usually eat - but this proved far too much for us because of the generosity of the portions! Our waitress wanted us to take a doggy bag but unfortunately there was no fridge in our 1970s style hotel room! Lovely food - lovely place - brilliant value for money - you MUST book - and don't let your eyes be bigger than your tummy!

“Delicious ”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

We booked mid week for a birthday dinner. There was so much to choose from on the menu so took a while to decide, no pressure from the waitress. After picking what we wanted it didn't take long for it too all come out and it was delicious! Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. The waitress even brought a cake out and everyone sang happy birthday to my partner. Lovely evening and great food. Will return soon!

“Good Tapas in Eastbourne”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Four of us went for dinner midweek, luckily we had made a reservation as it was soon full. We chose to order one of the suggested set meal options for 2 people and then ordered several additional dishes of our choice.

The service was friendly but the staff did seem to be struggling to be able to serve everyone as it was so busy. The food was good and we enjoyed the meal a lot. We were, however, surprised at 9pm to be asked if we wanted to order anything extra since the kitchen was about to close. This did seem extraordinarily early. We actually didn't want anything more in fact but this is something to bear in mind if you are looking at staying for a long relaxing evening.

All in all an enjoyable evening.
